18.00: The conference concludes with a standing buffet dinner at King Håkon’s Hall.

King Håkon´s Hall is more than seven hundred and fifty years old and was built by King Håkon Håkonsson between 1247 and 1261 as a royal residence and feasting hall. It’s a hall worthy of Kings – and Montessorians! During the dinner, children from local Montessori schools will sing for us.

On Sunday 13 September you have the opportunity to participate in an additional professional development day, where you can choose between four different topics: Leadership, Storytelling and Cosmic Education, Practical Life (0-6) and Special Needs.
